Canadian rock icon
Hot off a string of shows in the U.S. fronting The Guess Who, Carl Dixon is, without question, one of the most enduring and hard working musicians. His powerful vocals, artistry and stage presence have put him at the forefront of the Canadian rock industry for three decades. As one of Canada’s most respected musicians, a prolific songwriter, he’s renowned as both a solo artist and band member of groups such as Coney Hatch, The Guess Who and April Wine.
Throughout his career Dixon also toured with heavy metal icons such asJudas Priest, Iron Maiden, Triumph, Ted Nugent, Accept and Krokus. Carl also scored a staff songwriting deal with Rondor Music in New York in 1990. Among many songs, Carl wrote “Taste of Love” with Brett Walker for Jimi Jamison. That version was featured on an episode of “Baywatch.” Recently, Carl recorded the signature song for the hit CMT television show “Tornado Hunters”.
Carl was kind enough to come play the inaugural Rock N Ribs Festival and we are incredibly happy that he accepted our invitation to come back this year, and this time…he’s bringing some friends!
